Do you want to learn how to use LinkedIn?

Are you (or would you like to be) active on LinkedIn? And would you like to contribute to the faculty's focus on the professionals’ social media? Now you have the chance to learn new skills you can use on the platform, which can help you draw attention to your work and your workplace.

Health Communication invites all interested employees to a free LinkedIn crash course on Wednesday 25 November 2020 between 9:00-11:00.

On the course, you will learn about:

  • What a good LinkedIn profile contains
  • How to communicate most effectively on LinkedIn
  • Which types of content work best
  • Guidelines about appropriate behaviour on social media

What do you get out of participation?

The course equips you to become (more) active on LinkedIn. It will help you to:

  • Find and add interesting contacts to your network.
  • Draw attention to your work and your workplace among your peers, foundations, (potential) collaborative partners and your network in general.
  • Profile your knowledge and participate in debates within your area or field of work.
  • Become part of an informal LinkedIn network with colleagues from the entire faculty.

What do we expect form you?

We expect you to have already created a profile on LinkedIn. And that you will actively participate in the course, where you will e.g. work on creating specific posts together with your colleagues.

In addition, it is important for us:

  • That your activity on LinkedIn is voluntary.
  • That you communicate in a personal, trustworthy and credible manner about your work, your workplace and the topics that interest you.

Your LinkedIn profile is entirely your own, and we stay out of what or how often you post. You should first and foremost participate in the course and actively use LinkedIn for your own sake.
